A little bit on both. Not enough to sway me away from the lift and tires. I was at 17 city and 21 highway post lift, pre CAI and exhaust. After those it dropped a little more due to the slight increase in throttle reapinse and sound. I don't really care what my MPG is. Well...As long as it doesn't get to like 10 mpg average I will be fine.

But like others have said if you are concerned with mpg a Jeep isn't for you.

You can expect 3-5 mpg drop With the 5.7 Hemi Leveling kit Cooper LTZ 275/55/20 Plus lost my aerodynamics with the RRO pre-runner skid plate

Thanks for the responses. I don't care too much on mpg really just estimating costs. My zj gets about 11-12mpg as it is :P

That hemi mpg drop seems really high... I don't understand how the v6 had a small drop compared to your hemi?

LONG story short, Had my trans fluid changed and the dealer said they have a trans flash for the Jeep Before the flash I was getting 18-23 after the flash I dropped to 12-14 I told them about the drop in MPGs and had them REflash it and 4000mi later still the same

I used to come on here quite a bit until I sold my 00 WJ about 3 years ago. It was the worst three years of my life. I finally got a Jeep again. 2011 Laredo X. A buddy of mine just powder coated my wheels this weekend. No lift or tires on this as it is the family wagon.

What is a flash ? Is it a computer update for the tranny ?

If it is a update we can assume its best to not get the tranny update ?
